I graduated from Concordia University, St. Paul, Minnesota in 1981 with a BA in elementary education, certification as a Director of Christian Education, with an emphasis in music and youth. After 30 years of ministry I have been blessed to serve congregations in Minnesota, Illinois, Kentucky, and now Kansas. The Lord has continued to place challenges before me in every congregation that I have served. All have been rewarding and have helped me grow and mature in many ways. My first love is education. What a privilege to provide meaningful and exciting learning opportunities to all ages. Now I also have the joy of finding out peoples passions for ministry and enabling them to use their gifts to the glory of God.
